Work-life balance is a challenge! Once a long day at work is over, how do you switch off and wind down? Personally, taking my dog for a walk usually does the trick! 🐶

For me, it's putting the phone away and playing board games with my kids!

@shahdeepa Loved it! Sounds like a lot of fun! Is there a board game you particularly enjoy playing?

Hey Lior! I'm reading books =)

@lior_galante_cohen Sure=) Only books, on topics that interest you! I read «Traction by Gabriel Weinberg & Justin Mares» and «Built to Last by Jim Сollins & Jerry Porras».
Gaming, journalling, reading or watching a film. So after finishing my day job for 5pm I'll do one of the above. Then start working on my business for 6pm
As a founder, I actually have a hard time switching off from work. Somehow I get interested to try out different experiments with my startup and end up working till late night 😂 So how do you handle with it, Lior?

@gouthamj When you're a founder it's hard not to think about your ideas 24/7 lol. I take my dog for a walk, cook, exercise, spend time with friends and family, or watch TV :)
Stav Zelnik
Same! Love a long nice evening walk with the dogs

Closing my laptop lid and going out to play football with my friends. Clears my mind like nothing else. Any sport can really help you out. Highly recommended!

It depends on my mood, but I like to do CrossFit two times per week, but every day I like to watch some series, it turns my brain off for a couple of hours. I just stated Game of Thrones, and I am totally turned off. :D

For the past few weeks, I have been turning off my computer and talking to my parents about how their day went, and making preparations for dinner.

Have always found it quite hard to switch off work. Even if there isn't a lot of work, mind is always racing with ideas. I have found Calm and Headspace actually useful to relax.

Beer with some friends is my favorite solution 🍻

I find playing chess helpful, because that active mind still gets something to process that is not work related.

1) Cook dinner and feed myself 2) Self-care (even basic hygiene counts) 3) Hobby (pick up the guitar, ukulele, a book, some embroidery) 4) Cannabis ('nuff said) 5) Melatonin + a podcast as I drift off to sleep...

Reading, for sure! It's so relaxing to get comfy on the coach with a book, but it also takes you out of your mind to focus on someone else's story.
By putting things on autopilot before I wind down. Knowing that there is something to get my back while I unwind, really helps me unwind. Whatsresponse is one such autopilot tool . - a rules based Autoresponder for Whatsapp, which also works as a social CRM which help being connected with business/personal contacts 24x7.

Just by putting my laptop away and meditating for a short while

Hi! I try to finish the work at there and forget about what I was doing to clear my mind. Later I cook as you do:) and eat a proper meal while watching my fav. series of film.
